Taliban political delegation travels to Moscow - Ifax cites source

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A delegation of the Afghan Taliban's political office was in Moscow on Thursday, Russia's Interfax news agency cited a source as saying.

The report gave no further details. There has been a rapid deterioration in security in Afghanistan as the Taliban have made gains while the United States withdraws its forces after 20 years.
